With my first ten climbing sessions in the books for 2018, I wanted to take a step back to quickly summarize high-level trends of how I’m climbing. Hopefully over time, I’m able to see noticeable improvement and use these recaps to push myself further looking ahead to my next ten sessions.

Using my point system, so far this year I’m averaging a 38.6 for each climbing session.

I aim to send ten routes every workout, so assuming that as a baseline, I’m climbing at around a 3.86. This makes sense to me since most of my climbs fell between V3s and V4s in the sessions logged here and I only started pushing into V5s in the second half of this first set of workouts.

I don’t have many thoughts on the individual exercises I do for warmup and cooldown at this time, but imagine having the stats will be helpful once I start getting more sessions in and can compare a set of ten against another.

Best session in this stretch: 1/15/2018 – 48 points, including sending three V4s and three V5s.

Worst session: 1/2/2018 – 30.5 points. Not surprising since this was my first climb of the year coming back from a holiday break.
